If you are anything like myself – hair care is an important part of my daily routine. No matter where I go, I constantly get stopped and asked about my hair. I wanted to share some healthy hair tips that I follow while I dream away… super easy, right? Most of these tips are easy and is sure to not add any additional time to your normal bedtime routine.
Alright, are you ready to get simple tips and tricks for beautiful hair that are easy to do while you snooze? Let’s dive right in:
- Tie Up Your Hair When You Sleep – I usually tie my hair up in a loose bun. This definitely helps those who have stubborn flyaways and frizzy hair. It keeps your hair contained and for those into skincare, it will help keep the hair off your face. What is really important to keep in mind is not to tie your hair too tight, this can cause breakage and definitely contradict the whole point of getting beautiful hair!
- Brush Your Hair (Morning/Night) – I know you may be thinking, really?? But yes, this is very important. Brushing your hair is crucial to your haircare routine, because your scalp naturally produces oils that must be brushed out and be evenly distributed from the roots to the tips of your hair. These natural oils help to provide nutrients that promote beautiful, healthy hair.
- Change Your Pillowcases Often – I change my pillowcases every second day since I will sleep on one side and flip it over the next. I know your next question is, well what does a pillowcase have to do with beautiful hair? Cotton pillowcases typically absorb the moisture out of your hair causing more breakage and frizz. And all the oils from your face can cause your hair to become more oily and also affect your skin.
- Use a Satin or Silk Pillowcase – This is actually the best option for your hair. Satin or silk pillowcases let your hair retain its moisture and help those frizz and flyaways stay tame. This is also super beneficial to those of you out there with curly hair. When you toss and turn at night, these pillowcases ensure a smooth glide so your hair does not suffer any breakage while you snooze! Another added bonus is that this pillowcase is good for your skin!
Easy right? It does not take much effort to follow these healthy hair tips, especially while you sleep! Adding these simple steps to your daily (and nightly) routine are sure to get you on your way to beautiful hair!
